The voters have spoken and the results are in. No, not in New Hampshire or South Carolina, but in the election that has gripped Snap-on Nation - what shirt the Snap-on Funny Car crew will wear in 2012.
“A big ‘Thank You’ to all the Snap-on Facebook fans who voted in the contest,” said Yvette Morrison, vice president of marketing, Snap-on Tools Group. “We congratulate the winning voters who will receive a special Cruz-autographed ‘crew’ t-shirt. I know Cruz and the Snap-on Funny Car team will stand out in the crowd when they start the season on Feb. 9 in the Winternationals at Pomona.”
The crew shirt voting was held Jan. 6-10 on the Snap-on Facebook page. There were three designs to choose from and the winning selection is a black shirt with red and gray trim. The Snap-on “word” logo is on the front and the shirt features the Snap-on “S” logo with the words “Funny Car Serious Tools” on the back. As a bonus to the voting process, five lucky Snap-on Facebook fans were randomly chosen to win a Cruz Pedregon autographed Funny Car crew shirt featuring the winning design.
“The Snap-on Funny Car crew is excited about the new design and thanks all our Facebook friends who made this a fun contest,” said Pedregon. “This was a great way to begin my 20th year of sponsorship by Snap-on as well as my 20th anniversary of driving funny cars. We have many other exciting activities planned so keep checking Facebook for the latest news on the Snap-on Funny Car.”
The 2012 NHRA season begins on Feb. 9-12 with the Winternationals at Pomona, Calif.
